Live, from deep inside Iraq, hear special guest Lisa Miara, President, Springs of Hope Foundation, an international NGO based in Mosul in Northern Iraq. [See: www.SpringsOfHope.Foundation]
Living in a war zone, situated between refugee tents, goats, and sewage, Lisa Miara and her Foundation are reaching out to love and serve the survivors, Christians and Yezidis, people who must now recover from the effects of genocide by the Islamic State, IS/ISIS/ISIL/Daesh.
Learn what has been happening in camp Sharya inside the second largest city in Iraq, in the Ninevah province, as Lisa provides information and insight into the escape and rescue of women and children.
Despite the Iraqi government’s declaration of victory in its battle to retake the City of Mosul, ISIS continues to wage war on their way out – vowing to fight until victory or martyrdom. Indeed, ISIS soldiers have made clear they are prepared to fight until the very last man / jihadist is dead or dying.
Help Lisa break the world’s apathy towards the smallest of children who have experienced horrific atrocities inside Iraq. Repeatedly, we hear the stories of the victims, many of whom are just children – witnesses to family members tortured, beheaded, burned alive, and crucified. Go to Lisa’s website, www.SpringsofHope.Foundation and stand with her for life and hope in the lives of the innocent.
Lisa writes on her Foundation’s website: “Our NGO relies on acts of kindness and generosity from people like yourself whose hearts ache and whose conscience is stirred over these amazing, noble people, war refugees, Yezidis and other minority groups struggling to survive here in Northern Iraq, post genocide, which the world continuously chooses to ignore. Such acts of giving never die.”
And on another topic, discover the betrayal of the First Amendment by Republican Senator Marco Rubio and Democrat Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris. The U.S. Senate passed Senate Resolution 118 in an effort to criminalize free speech.
Working behind the scenes with United States legislatures, Islamic groups seek to criminalize free speech. Viciously anti-Semitic organizations who support terrorists and regularly condemn U.S. counter-terrorism measures, groups like MPAC, the Muslim Public Affairs Council and Emgage USA, drafted U.S. Senate Resolution 118 that condemns any form of expression that may be perceived as hostile to Islam or racist. And yet Islam has nothing to do with race. Moreover, being Islamic or Muslim is NOT exclusive to any one ethnic group, but has been embraced by all races and many, many ethnic groups the world over.
Islam is an ideology. Its followers call anyone a racist who dares to discuss female genital mutilation, honor killings, Islamic terrorism, blasphemy laws that target Christians and other non-Muslims in which the simplist of things may be perceived to dishonor the prophet, Islamic teachings, or Muslims.

Also learn of an outstanding move by the White House to take a preemptive move towards the Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad to prevent yet another effort to use chemical weapons to attack targets inside Syria.
And as the U.S. and America’s allies face an escalating number of terror attacks as Islamists and their followers work to spread Shariah law and grow the control of Islam worldwide, hear the President, in his own words, celebrate Western civilization in a speech to the Polish people suggesting that “the West will never, ever be broken. Our values will prevail. Our people will thrive. And our civilization will triumph.”
